Mozambique’s football team coach, Luis Goncalves, is optimistic his boys will put up a good performance against the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon in their upcoming Africa Cup Of Nations (AFCON) qualifier next month.
Cameroon and Os Mambas of Mozambique play a double-header in November with the West African’s playing hosts on November 12 while travelling for the reverse fixture on November 16.
The Mambas of Mozambique are in Group F alongside Cameroon, Rwanda and Cape Verde.
Gonclaves said on Monday in Lagos on telephone that the international friendly matches his team played against Angola and Guinea Bissau would assist them to prepare for the AFCON qualifying double header against Cameroon.
“We have learnt lessons from the friendly matches. It was important for us to play the friendly matches after the COVID-19 break because Angola and Guinea Bissau are strong teams.
“We have analysed our performances and will make necessary corrections,’’ he said.
The Portuguese-born manager said it was too early to say if there would be changes in the team that would play against Cameroon.
“We have some injuries in the team. Our evaluation of the two international friendlies are important and that is key to determine if there will be changes.
“Whatever decision we take at the end, we will do our best when we meet Cameroon,’’ Goncalves said.
